A Life in Blood – Horror Queen Genoveva Rossi Sits Down With Horror Icon Sid Haig

genrossibannerrsz_sh1Horror Queen Genoveva Rossi Sits Down With Horror Icon Sid Haig

I was truly honored to be a guest with Sid Haig at Monsters and Robots in New Jersey, Scare-a-con in New York State, Scare-a-con in New England, and at Mad Monster Party in South Carolina. In South Carolina it was an epic treat to see him a marry some horror fans dressed up as Captain Spaulding. Oh yeah, in addition to being an actor he is an ordained minister.

Genoveva: Amazing meeting with the great Sid Haig today. We are both in Death House, which is a film developed by Gunnar Hansen of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Were you friends with Gunnar Hansen?

rsz_sh2Haig: Yes we were friends and had known each other at least ten years. He was a good guy. I am excited about it actually.

Genoveva: Everyone that is anyone in horror seems to be in it: you, Tony Todd, Kane Hodder, Dee Wallace, Barbara Crampton, Adrienne Barbeau, Bill Oberst Jr, . . .the list goes on and on. I am honored to have a cameo.

Haig: And Vernon Wells. Yes everyone is in Death House.

Genoveva: So Sid I think everyone would be curious to know what your first acting role was and when?

rsz_sh3Haig: When I was about 12 years old I played the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz.

Genoveva: Very cute

Haig: That’s how I am. I just do things. I see something and I do it.

Genoveva: A fascinating part of your film career is your work in black exploitation films especially working with Pam Grier.

Haig: That’s not work haha. We did six films together. The director found her working as a secretary and came up to her. He actually talked her into becoming an actress.

Genoveva: Amazing here you are an actor since childhood and Pam Grier had to be convinced to go into acting. And then you ended up in six films together. It’s interesting how everyone gets into acting for different reasons.

rsz_sh4Haig: I actually got into acting as a kid because I was growing so fast I had no coordination so I couldn’t do sports so I got involved in the theater! Then my parents wanted me to take dance classes. I know ballet, tap, jazz, and more stuff. I have danced in a number of films.

Genoveva: Tell me a bit about how you came to meet Rob Zombie and get cast in House off A Thousand Corpses?

Haig: Rob Zombie was a big fan of Jason of Star Command a TV series that aired 1978-1981 and I scared him in the show. Rob said to himself if I ever make a movie I am putting that guy in it and when he was casting his film he reached out and offered me a role.

rsz_sh5Genoveva: What was it like working with Rob Zombie?

Haig: He was great; really laid back and lets you do what you want, gets out of the way, and lets you do your job.

Genoveva: He puts a lot of trust in his actors.

Haig: And that’s how a director should work. You can the right people and then let them do their job.

Genoveva: Tell our readers a bit about what it was like working on House of a 1000 Corpses? And playing Captain Spaulding?

Haig: I met Karen Black at the premiere. Unfortunately, we had no scenes together and shot on different days. The clown character has become the role I am most known for. People think it was my first role, but it was probably my 100th. Now all these years later I go to conventions and see people dressed up as Captain Spaulding, with t-shirts, hats, and even tattoos. It’s amazing. There must be 100,000 people with Captain Spaulding tattoos. I go to Spain they’re there, Germany they’re there; all over the world.

rsz_sh6credit_-_todd_staruchGenoveva: What was being on set like?

Haig; Well the companion disk for House of 1000 Corpses is called 30 Days in Hell because for 30 days we worked in 103 degree heat. I developed an appreciation for women that waxed. With all the dried blood on my chest and body I was ripping out my body hair every time I took off my shirt. My nipples were hard and painful. It took 45 minutes to brush the crap off my teeth.

Genoveva: What was is like working with Ginger Lynn? I was on her radio show once about a year ago and I have to admit you came up when we were discussing our experiences doing sex scenes in films.

Haig: Again, that’s not work. I have the most pre-eminent porn stars of the 1980s riding me like it was the Kentucky Derby. I remember telling Rob Zombie that I have to wear my underwear for this because if I go skin to skin with her it’s going to be a whole different type of movie. Haha. I told Rob I wanted to do something in my sex scene that would piss off every woman watching; leave my socks on during sex. Sex is kind of ridiculous if you think about it. You help another person undress and when it’s over you dress yourself.

rsz_sh7credit_-_todd_staruchGenoveva: That’s a good point Sid. Everyone’s on their good side until they’ve gotten what they’ve wanted. Haha

Genoveva: Looking back at your long career and everything you’ve done what is the one thing you’d want to be the most remembered for?

Haig: Wow! (pause) Spider Baby. When I was a kid I would wake up Saturday morning and watch Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolfman then all of a sudden there I am working with him. For the first couple days I couldn’t even speak. He loosened me up and became my mentor actually. He taught me a lot and gave me some good advice I appreciated at the time. I was a huge fan of Universal Studio Monster Movies and would rush out to see them when they came out. That is my best moment in film and what I’d like to be remembered for.

Thanks for reading this month’s A Life In Blood: Tales of a Horror Queen! See you ghouls next month for more tales of horror.

CryptTV at Tribeca Film Festival: Genoveva Rossi meets and talks with Eli Roth and CryptTV CEO Jack Davis

 

genrossibannerrsz_gr1CryptTV at Tribeca Film Festival: Genoveva Rossi meets and talks with Eli Roth and CryptTV CEO Jack Davis

This horror queen was honored to attend the legendary Tribeca Film Festival and watch Crypt TV’s Monster Madness shorts block. After the screening I was able to get a few words with Eli Roth and CEO Jack Davis.

Crypt TV’s Monster Madness features some of the best and biggest character shorts from the digital brand’s scaremakers.” -Tribeca Film Festival

A few words with Eli Roth:

rsz_gr4Q: What attracts you to horror?

What scares Cronenberg isn’t what scares Wes Craven. What scares you varies. Horror is very personal.” –Eli Roth

Q: Where did the inspiration for CryptTV come from?

Roth: I graduated from NYU 1995 and wrote Cabin Fever. I know that dates me, but I am old. Even then I felt like horror had a big audience like the Comic Cons. We are seeing that now with Walking Dead. What I want to create is a platform that I wished existed when I was getting out of film school, back when filming a short cost a minimum of 10k. Now we can shoot shorts for much less and even on our phones. So we created something to showcase horror shorts that serves the genre’s audience.

Q: Roth wants to help other filmmakers.

Roth: After the success of Cabin Fever and Hostile I was in a position to help other filmmakers with films like Clown and The Last Exorcism. I really enjoy helping people I like. CryptTV is part of that.

rsz_gr3rsz_gr2Interview with Jack Davis CEO of CryptTV

Thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions about CryptTV for ukhorrorscene!!! I am sure our readers are anxious to check out your great horror programming. First off I want to say it was really inspiring meeting you and Eli Roth at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City for the CryptTV screening and panel.

Genoveva: Tell us a bit about what CryptTV is and what makes CryptTV unique in the horror genre? 

Davis: CryptTV makes mobile scares. We specialize in creating original scary stories and creating our own monsters in three to four minute videos perfect for watching on your phone. Crypt is the only brand creating original, short form programming every day for people watching on the phone which is why I think we are unique in the horror genre.

Genoveva: How did the great Eli Roth come to be involved with CryptTV and what exactly is his role?

Davis: Eli Roth is the co-founder of CryptTV. We launched Crypt together and he plays an integral role in content and brand strategy as well as giving his input on general company operations. Eli has been at the cutting edge of the genre for decades so having his insight is invaluable for Crypt.

Genoveva: What is your own background in horror and what inspired the creation of CryptTV?

Davis: Knowing and loving the power of scary in film and TV I was inspired to co-found CryptTV because there just was not a great destination for original scary that could be enjoyed on mobile.

Genoveva: What can horror fans look forward to seeing on CryptTV in the near future?

Davis: More monsters. We are going to start serializing our fans’ favorite content very soon.

Genoveva: Where are the best places to look for updates on CryptTV? Also how can aspiring horror filmmakers get involved? 

rsz_gr6Davis: Follow us on Facebook at Facebook.com/CryptTV & sign up for our newsletter on CryptTV.com which we will be bringing back soon. Aspiring horror filmmakers email submissions @CryptTV.com with your work!

A Life in Blood – Tales of a Horror Queen #10 Shooting Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania

rsz_1bm1Shooting Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania in Calgary, Canada

Herschell Gordon Lewis may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. Thankfully he left horror fans with a parting gift: Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania! Lewis is truly a horror legend and his films will be remembered. In fact, he was recently remembered on Turner Classic Network for those we lost in 2016.

When I came out to Calgary, Canada to shoot Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Bloodmania I thought this was the beginning of Lewis return to film, but sadly this ended up being his final film. It was a realization of a dream to be in Bloodmania; I was a big fan of Lewis and it was amazing to be leaving New York City to shoot in Canada. I am truly honored to have a celebrity cameo in his final epic film.

rsz_bm2I want to say what an honor it is to be included in a film by such a legendary film director of the horror genre! Lewis’ has made huge contributions to film! My favorites include Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs, and Wizard of Gore so give them a watch next time your in the mood for some classic gore!

I arrived in December and was lucky enough to attend a special Meet and Great put together by James Saito, Vice-president of Development and Production at Diabolique Films and President at HGB Entertainment Ltd. I got to meet some of the brightest people in the Calgary independent film scene. It was wonderful to finally meet James Saito after speaking to him for such a long time about are mutual loves of horror, and filmmaking. I am very thankful for the opportunity to come out to Canada and get covered in blood!

rsz_bm3Then I had a very bloody photo shoot with the very talented photographer, Kenneth Locke. Angela White, Sara-Joy Goode, Donovan Cerminara, and I were part of an amazing promo photo shoot. I arrived, had my hair and makeup done by the skilled Ashley Godick, changed into something super sexy and then we were ready for some fun! It was a tantalizing blood orgy for the eyes! Horror fans can look forward to seeing Genoveva Rossi as you have never seen her before! It was a beautifully bloody mess of a shoot!

Next it was on to shoot my part for Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania! First I want to say what an honor it is to be included in a film by such a legendary film director of the horror genre! Lewis’ has made huge contributions to film! My favorites include Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs, and Wizard of Gore so give them a watch next time your in the mood for some classic gore!

rsz_bm4One of the many of the high points of working on Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania was working with the amazing special effects expert David Trainor. Look for his work in the hit television show Fargo! It was amazing watching David in action! So much blood and gore for horror fans! It was also a pleasure to work closely with the multitalented James Saito.

When I learned of Lewis’ passing I cried. Perhaps we just all thought he was immortal. Certainly Lewis never planned on dying; he was simply too busy living. I am inspired that this was a man that lived creatively and fully up to the end and to the age of 86. He was a gentleman and a visionary who will never be forgotten. This horror queen is truly honored to be in his final film.

A Life in Blood – Tales of a Horror Queen #9 – March 2017

genrossibannerA Life in Blood – Tales of a Horror Queen #9 – March 2017

rsz_gen1This horror queen had the recent unexpected honor of winning best actor Gold award at LA Shorts Awards film festivals for The Abducted. I found out about the win when director Larry Rosen posted it on Facebook. I met Larry Rosen in 2012 working on a project called Midnight Show. We exchanged contact info then years later Larry reached out when he had the perfect role for me.

Working with Genoveva Rossi is fun. She can identify the direction we are trying to take the [horror] film and brings in her brand of creepy horror to the role.”

The day we filmed The Abducted I awoke in New Jersey to the sound of screaming near my bedroom window. A while late there was a knock on my apartment door. In my normally peaceful neighborhood a man had been shot in front of my apartment and staggered over to the alley under my window where he died.

rsz_gen3Very upsetting news and my mind was scared and confused as I tried to get ready for my film shoot. I got outside and my car was parked in a crime scene. I called the director to let him know I would be a few minutes late because I had awoken to a murder and now the cops had to let me know when I could remove my car from a crime scene! A man shot probably a couple yards from my parked car. Unbelievable.

I got to the set of The Abducted already in a pretty intense, fearful mental state and perhaps that only helped be to focus for my performance as an abducted and abused woman who tries to fight back. I remember Larry Rosen saying on set that this was a pretty interesting filming story; art imitating life.

The Abducted has won 14 awards at film festivals so far including best short, actor, and director. It will also be part of Larry Rosen’s upcoming anthology feature Death At A Barbecue and Cries and Pleads.

rsz_gen7Genoveva has a good idea of what works in horror and how to implement it.” –Larry Rosen

Later Larry and I worked on You Can’t Predict Fate, which is a short going to film festivals. . I am the lead in this film and my character pays homage to Kathy Bates in Misery. I jumped at the chance to play such a disturbing character. I am a huge fan of Misery; I have read the book and seen the movie. Kathy Bates is so perfect in the role and an amazing actress in everything she does. It was great fun to get inside this role and let out my dark side. As an actress, I love playing unconventional female roles and I was honored that director Larry Rosen offered me the part..

As an actress in horror I want to see myself playing roles that express the darkness in the souls of women. Women capable of perhaps great love, but also great evil.” –Genoveva Rossi

rsz_gen2DEATH AT A BARBECUE (2017)
A group of friends get together for a barbecue. They decide to start telling horror stories around the fire. Although not everyone at the barbecue will make it home alive. As they tell stories, a killer begins to kill them off, one at a time. The feature acts as a wrap-around for an anthology of short films. The short films featured, have won combined, over 23 awards on the festival circuit.

Lloyd Kaufman and I also shot a cameo in Rosen’s upcoming feature Into The Outbreak. It’s a dramatic horror feature with zombies. The characters are really well developed and alive. It was fun acting in this with Hamza Zaman.

rsz_gen5INTO THE OUTBREAK (2017)
Macy and John are nearing the end of their relationship. Mandy and Steve just had a one night stand. Then an infectious outbreak starts turning people into cannibals. Now each of these survivors must deal with their issues as they attempt to survive the outbreak. Low on food, no law enforcement, infected cannibals eating people in the streets, fear grows of what is outside and what might come through the door next. Film is on the festival circuit and anticipating a dvd/vod release late Fall 2017.

The film business is all about building creative relationships and bringing the best out of each other. Films are a team effort and it’s always a pleasure to be part of director Larry Rosen’s team! Thanks for reading this month’s A Life In Blood: Tales of a Horror Queen! See you ghouls next month for more tales of horror.

A Life in Blood – Tales of a Horror Queen #8 – Nov 2016

genrossibannerA Life in Blood – Tales of a Horror Queen #8 – Nov 2016

Traveling horror queen: Genoveva Rossi meets Sergio Stivaletti in Rome, Italy and is a guest at Fantasia in Montreal, Canada!

Genoveva Rossi is at café in Rome with the great Sergio Stivaletti

When recently on a beautiful trip to Rome, Italy this horror queen had the honor of meeting up with the great Sergio Stivaletti, whom lives in the ancient city. We met up twice to discuss his life in horror. It was a pleasure to meet up for pizza and espresso with a film legend.

Sergio Stivaletti is an Italian director, producer, make-up artist and one of the greatest European special effects experts. He is considered one of the pioneers in introducing computer effects to the silver screen. During the rich 30-year career on film, television and theatre, he worked on more than 50 movies with some of the biggest names of Italian cinematography, like Dario Argento, Michele Soavi, Lamberto Bava, Roberto Benigni and Gabriele Salvatores. He also runs  Fantastic Forge: Special Effects and Applied Arts School.

Sergio said Dario Argento’s Creepers was really his starting point and his first important work. He got to really create and experiment to create the amazing special effects in the film. Jennifer Connelly was very young and very nice to work with. Looking back Sergio wished that they had been able to connect more on set, but he was so deeply involved in his consuming work on the film.

genrosnov2Also working on Demons and Demons 2 were great experiences. He recalls Demons as being a wonderful challenge for him at the time. He started doing more difficult effects in this film and using animatronics. Argento’s Opera really stands out for him too. He worked on some amazing digital effects with Asia Argento that were really unique for films in Italy at that time. In a short time his career became very rich and diverse.

Wax Mask is the first film Sergio Stivaletti directed and Dario Argento produced. Originally Lucia Fulci had been chosen to direct the film, but he sadly died before he could direct the film. It was intended to be a team of Argento and Fulci, but Fulci died. It was a tough film to direct, but Sergio put a lot of himself into it. In fact much of it was shot in his home and workshop. It was an important film for Stivaletti because it was the start of something new in his career; directing.

With his extensive experience, Stivaletti still has his heart very much in horror and he has a a unique project currently in development. He wants to remake Bela Lugosi’s Devil Bat from 1940. He wants to bring new life to this classic film. Also Sergio is working on an artistic horror film called The Muse. He is trying to do something very different and exciting in the horror genre. He believes in using both the digital effects and practical effects to create the best of both worlds.

genrosnov3We often forget that horror movies are art. This is especially true with the special effects.  It is like a cross between being an artist and a mad scientist. –Sergio Stivaletti

For many years I have been a huge fan of Dario Argento and Italian horror. In fact years ago I had been in the audience at the Italian Horror Panel at the Chiller Theatre Expo in New Jersey. Sergio Stivaletti was part of that panel. Now years later  it was spectacular to get to meet up and speak with him in Italy. Bellissimo!

Fantasia 2016

This year was my second year as a guest at Fantasia in Montreal, Canada. For those of you who don’t know of this two week long film festival it is accurate to say it is the “Sundance of horror film festivals”. It is an opportunity for me to see some of the best and brightest new films of the genre. Here are some reviews of the films I saw.

genrosnov5Kaijyu Mono
This film clearly was intended to pay homage  to classic Japanese monster movie. Think Godzilla. I grew up on Godzilla so I found this film a fun reminder of my childhood. I loved that it was virtually untouched by modern special effects and that the monster was obviously just a guy in a monster suit stepping on a train set. If you love camp and this genre the film will be monsterous fun to watch.

Train to Busan
This was one of the strongest films I saw at Fantasia. Just when I thought the zombie genre was getting a bit overdone I see this film and I am captivated once again. This film falls under the category of dramatic horror. The characters are very well developed and this is a tearjerker of a zombie film. The story reminded me so much of an old film starring Sophia Loren called Cassandra’s Crossing, which is about a person carrying a deadly virus and getting on a train. I would be shocked if that writer hadn’t seen that film since they are essentially the same film, but with zombies.

genrosnov6The Unseen
This was an interesting family drama with the focus on a man and his daughter. Things get a bit odd when we realize that they are both quickly becoming transparent and that this is actually a modern interpretation of The  Invisible Man. The acting was solid and the special effects amazing. Some of my favorite moments has to do with an Asian herbalism as a pliable cure. My eyes I need to start taking herbal remedies.

Shelley
A dark, Gothic tale of exactly how far a childless couple will go to have a baby. Perhaps to hell and back. This film  is reminiscent of Rosemary’s Baby and packs a bunch. A rich, peculiar couple pays their immigrant maid to carry their child. The maid is badly in need of money to provide for her family back home and to be reunited with her child. It’s an offer she cannot pass up, but has she made a deal with the Devil?

genrosnov7Embers
Set in the future a virus has infected the world and everyone exposed to it has lost their long and short term memory. Human history has essentially been wiped out and people now have as much memory as my of goldfish. All new experiences are fleeting since no one can remember much from one day to another. The film focuses on a young couple trying to figure out what they may have been to each other before the virus; siblings, friends, lovers, spouses? What are their names? Who are they? Thee only people unaffected are a father and daughter in an underground bunker and they seem the sole historians of human history and culture. This film seem to ask: even  without memory, does love still find a way to blossom in the human soul?

Man Underground
A eccentric man decides to film an  autobiographical film about his work with UFOs and government conspiracy. He casts his best friend and a local waitress as leads then starts shooting. He tells these extraordinary stories of coming face to face with aliens and spaceships. He believes the government wants him dead for what he’s seen and what he knows this the film is needed to release this secret information to the public. The audience is left wondering until the end if he is a paranoid nut or a man on a quest to reveal the truth.

genrosnov8Let Me Make You A Martyr
As I approached the theater I couldn’t help, but notice the line around the corner of Marilyn Manson fans costumed in black  waiting to see this film. And Manson’s performance didn’t disappoint. Evidently this film was a labor of love and took years of work to get it pulled together and Manson was brought in as supporting cast a mere  two days before they shot his scenes. With a short amount of time to prepare for the role this Antichrist Superstar rose to the occasion and nailed a cleverly unstated performance as a hired assassin. It was a unique film with great style and  with a host of interesting characters. Afterwards filmgoers described Marilyn Manson as their favorite part of the film and only wished he had more screen time.

The Greasy Strangler
This was a really, really wacky horror comedy about a guy that absolutely loves to eat super greasy food then strangle people. Yeah, pretty wacky. The style seems to be very 1970s. If a prize was awarded for the most bizarre comedic nude scenes in a film this movie  would win it for the full frontal nudity of men. If you like penises and your like silly movies this is your film.

I had another great year at Fantasia. The people, the films, and the festival are always great. I look forward to next year! Save some Poutine for me eh?

A Life In Blood – Tales of A Horror Queen by Genoveva Rossi #7 – Walker Stalker & an Exclusive Interview with Elvira

genrossibannerA Life In Blood – Tales of A Horror Queen by Genoveva Rossi #7 – Walker Stalker and an Exclusive Interview with Elvira

grws4As I approached the location of the New Jersey Walker Stalker Convention I was a bit taken aback by the the line of cars down the road anxiously waiting to get inside. I knew horror fans all over the world loved The Walking Dead, but I didn’t realize quite how much evidently. After parking a long walk away from the convention center I then noticed the line to get in and was thankful The Digital Dead got me a press pass.

Inside fans were waiting on long lines for hours to meet Walking Dead star Norman Reedas. Last year while in New Jersey Reedas was bitten by an eager or perhaps hungry female fan. It amazes me that women happily wait on line 6 or 8 hours to meet him as though they will climax once they are face to face with him.

grws2All press was forbidden to interview any current members of the cast due to The Walking Dead’s fear of any spoilers accidentally going to print so my interviews with cast mostly focused on those that has died on the show. I found that every actor felt very differently about their character being killed. Walker Stalker was a fun filled weekend for fans of The Walking Dead and zombie enthusiasts. It was a great event.

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark and horror icon (aka. Cassandra Peterson). I just want to say as a horror actress and genre fan, Elvira has always been a true inspiration for me; a unique and amazing woman in horror.

Genoveva: Great meeting you and thank you for your time. Elvira or Cassandra Peterson? What do you prefer to be called?

Elvira: Well yesterday Elvira and today Cassandra. It depends on what color my hair is.

grws1Genoveva: Depending on how you are dressed. Do you ever get tired of dressing as Elvira? Do you wish you could be yourself more?

Elvira: I like being Elvira because it makes people happy. They love the character. The only bad part is the two hours of make-up, clothes and wig and that can get a little old.

Genoveva: How long have you been Elvira?

Elvira: This year it’s 35 years.

Genoveva: Where do you see Elvira going in the future?

Elvira: I see her going home to bed and eating dinner. (haha) I don’t mean to brag, but I see Elvira has reached this iconic status. That Elvira is a strong image that can carry on without me with merchandising and such.

grws3Genoveva: So what are the plans for Cassandra?

Elvira: Oh me! Like I said sleeping and eating; all those things. Going on lots of vacations. I imagine I will be doing this for a few more years. As long as I can fit in my dress.

Genoveva: Would you ever want to do a movie about your life or autobiography?

Elvira: I am in the middle of my autobiography. I have been writing it forever. It’s going to be as thick as the bible. Just to mention I have a coffee table book coming out Oct 1st of 35 years of all my photographs. From the first day to present. Awesome book; like an autobiography in photos. That will be this Oct and my biography who knows; when I get time to finish writing it.

grws6Genoveva: I am a big fan of your films both Elvira Mistress of the Dark and Haunted Hills. Any plans to do more films?

Elvira: Plans for an Elvira animated television show. Animation is the way to go; I don’t have to look good. Don’t have to dress up and I read the dialogue; I love it!

Genoveva: Any final thoughts to leave us with?

grws5Elvira: Well yeah go to Elvira.com and check out everything I am up to. And I have a lot of merchandising. You can find out where I am, what I’m doing, be my friend on Facebook. Be awesome; at The Real Elvira. Also on Twitter and Instagram. That would be awesome.

apock1A Life In Blood – Tales of A Horror Queen by Genoveva Rossi #6 – Apocalypse Kiss Exclusive!

Apocalypse Kiss was just re-released and it now available online on Amazon Prime so I thought it would be a great time to talk about the film, interview the star D.C. Douglas and director Christian Jude Grillo. Apocalypse Kiss is a different kind of film for me; it encompasses the sci-fi, suspense and horror genres.

It was not only a chance for me to play a part completely different that anything I had done before, but it was also a chance to be in a film with such talents as Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Tom Atkins (Lethal Weapon), and D. C. Douglas (Resident Evil). I play Clara, a very pregnant hippie working at a café the main characters have some important scenes at. It was a challenging role that included me giving birth on film.

I remember walking onto the set and seeing D. C. Douglas for the first time. I have to admit he looked rather striking as his serial killer character Adrian. For the role, Douglas has his hair dyed a gorgeous shade of blonde and he was bronzed with a luminous fake tan over his whole body. On set, I decided to go over and introduce myself to Douglas. At first, he thought we had already met because I looked so familiar to him. Then it hit him, he had seen me before! He’d seen the footage of my birth scene. He told me that I did a great job and that “no one gives birth like you Genoveva.” I was very flattered that such an accomplished actor was impressed by my work.

apock7It was such an fantastic experience working with the entire cast and crew of this film. Christian Jude Grillo is a great director. His wife Carmela Hayslett Grillo and Tammy Jean were wonderful as the lesbian murderers that add a lot of spice to the film. Their scenes are very edgy, and disturbing.

“It was one of the best experiences I ever had working on a film. Everyone on the cast and crew were so in sync with each other. We all supported each other and helped each other. We were like one, big, creative, happy family,” recalled Carmela Hayslett Grillo.

“Well, it was cold! lol I swear it was colder inside than outside. But those are the sacrifices you make on a small budget film. We had heaters but they made so much noise you couldn’t use them when you were filming. I remember the coldest night was the sex scene with Plex and it was daylight savings time so by the time we left that night it was like 4 am. And everyone kept asking me between takes if I was OK, and I just kept saying, I’m fine, just keep shooting. But you couldn’t have picked a better set to fit the movie. That old mill was perfect and they completed transformed parts of the inside at times for different scenes. I was flattered Christian took a chance on me because it was my first major speaking role. It definitely will always be remembered as the kick off acting wise for any roles to come for me in the future,” remembers Tammy Jean.

An Interview with D.C. Douglas

Genoveva – How did you come to get involved in the film Apocalypse Kiss?

D.C.: I got an offer to be in it via my agent. Out of the blue! Turned out it was due to Carmela Hayslett who was a fan of my work as a voice over actor in the “Resident Evil” franchise. I voice the villain Albert Wesker. They offered me the choice of two roles and I opted for the delicious role of Adrian.

Genoveva – This was a really unique role for you and you give a powerful performance. A serial killer with OCD and you do have a sexy scene or two in the film. You looked fabulous as Adrian. Tell us a bit about how you prepared for the role?

D.C.: Well shucks! Thank you. Well, knowing my butt would be seen on camera I immediatly set up a training schedule in the gym and got my middle-aged body into something film-able over the 6 months prior. Closer to the production dates I mentioned to the director that since the film is futuristic and the only reason I’m in it is because they loved me as Albert Wesker – why not have me blonde like him? They were stoked so I went VERY blonde and tanned up, as well. I was going to change my eye color but one of the contacts didn’t fit right so I said, “cool! He’s like David Bowie, but he hates his ugly brown eye!”

The director, Christian Grillo, was very cool to work with and gave me freedom with my dialogue (I had a lot of long lines, etc) so I was able to explore Adrian’s quirks and desires even deeper. And having the couple months with the final script helped out a lot. Very different than my TV gigs and especially voice overs.

DC Douglas

Genoveva – What were some highlights of working on the film?

D.C.: Having the costumer from the film “Tommy” dress me?! That was cool. To be honest, I loved every bit of it. The whole crew and cast were great to hang with and Christian’s ingenuity with camera and sets is astounding. And so damn smart. They rented an abandoned mill and converted it into a multi-level film studio!

Genoveva – I was recently on a date with a Resident Evil fan and he was a big fan of yours. Can you tell us a bit about your amazing career? Perhaps some of the things you are most proud of.

D.C.: You’re very kind, but I think of my career as your average unknown actor career in LA! Aside from AK, I really am excited to see “Isle of the Dead” on SyFy later this year. I play the main antagonist in this and had a blast being rather neurotic and dangerous. I also am very proud of my film short, “The Crooked Eye,” which is narrated by Academy Award winner Linda Hunt. You can find it on iTunes. TV wise there’s Boston Common – a sitcom in the 90’s where I played “DC” in 11 episodes. In voice over, I always have to tip my hat to “Resident Evil” and “Mass Effect” since they brought me so many fans. And, of course, my first and only series regular role as Chase on “Transformers: Rescue Bots!”

Tammy Jean and Carmela Hayslett Grillo

Genoveva – Also let us know what to look for you in and how to follow you. What are some of your current projects and where are you appearing?

D.C. I mentioned “Isle of the Dead” with Joey Lawrence, Maryse MIzanin and myself. I have a small disturbing cameo in “Smartass” with Joey King. I can also be seen in the recently released “KILD TV” as Milton/Dr Preseco. That’s a fun one for horror fans.

An Interview With Director Christian Jude Grillo

Genoveva – Why is your background in filmmaking? How did you get started?

Christian: I started with a background in music. When not in a band, the music that I composed in the earliest days of computer recording sounded most like soundtracks to a film. I always loved the way that music played an integral part of telling a story. Wanting to do a film score wasn’t enough. I needed a film to score. So I wrote and produced my first feature film “Belial”. This was the beginning of my film career.

apock3

Michael Berryman

Genoveva – Can you tell us about about how the original idea for the script was born? What was your creative process?

Christian: We had finished Deer Crossing, our film with Doug Bradley and Ernie Hudson. As happy as I was with this movie, I felt that I hadn’t reached for the stars yet (mind the pun) and I felt that as a director/writer I was ready to go big or stop trying. My favorite genre has always been Sci-Fi, but “dark” Sci-Fi. I have always been utterly impressed by Richard Stanley’s film HARDWARE. This was a low budget concept that honestly is amazing visually and creates a distopian world with small sets and a perfect soundtrack. It’s a metal head’s sci-fi. But doing another “Hardware” kind of film would not be enough at this point in time, I wanted the BIG PICTURE feel.

I wanted BLADE RUNNER. So I began to write a pre-apocalypse film with the heart of Hardware and the Look of a “poor man’s” Blade Runner. The only problem with was, there isn’t as much of an outlet for free press for indie Sci-Fi as there is for horror, so… I had to write in a horror element, that’s where the battling serial killers came into play. I have an odd way of writing… I come up with a name first and build the story from it. With a name like Apocalypse Kiss, the story had to be “end world”, “sexy” and and stylish.

Genoveva – One of the most striking things about this film is how visually stunning it is. Tell us a bit about the construction of sets, art direction, and wardrobe design.

Christian: Well, if I was gonna go big… I had to really give it everything I had. This means that using the world around me would not be enough. There had to be completely fabricated locations in this movie that set it apart from the normal everyday. The sets in Apocalypse Kiss are characters in themselves. In the entire film we constructed nine sets, two of these sets were over 40 feet long. Here’s the problem, we only had about three thousand dollars to build all of these sets. The majority of the sets were built out of cheap construction materials. I scheduled the shooting days so that we could tare down a set and use it’s pieces to construct new ones during production.

The art design was that of an aged world that lost it’s infrastructure. I wanted the sets of Apocalypse Kiss to feel used, rusted and held together like a flea market vending area. This look and design also works well when you have no money.

As far as the wardrobe goes, I felt that I can’t build a new world without creating the look and fashion of it’s people. I hired a local well known wardrobe designer Leonard Pollack to handle the fabrication of some of the special pieces like “The Wizard’s Robe”. Leonard was also responsible for wardrobe management on each shooting date based off of a wardrobe chart that I put together for him. One of the other notable things about Apocalypse Kiss is that every person in the movie was in a wardrobe that either I or Leonard put together. There were 35 extras and over 20 cast members in Apocalypse Kiss so that was no small task.

Genoveva Rossi

Genoveva – You assembled a truly amazing cast including: Michael Berryman, Tom Atkins and D. C. Douglas. What was the casting process like? Any fun stories you’d like to share from set?

Christian: Well as you can imagine we didn’t have a lot of budget for big names, but I wanted some recognizable faces in the film to help it sell. We decided in true Apocalypse Kiss fashion to go for many small genre names instead of a couple bigger names. The Name Genre cast was made up of D.C. Douglas (a video game voice over legend), Lloyd Kaufman (The godfather of indie film making and my personal hero), Michael Berryman (Horror Icon/Sci-Fi legend), Tom Atkins (Hollywood Cop), and Steven Blum (another great cartoon and video game name). I figured with this ensemble of genre players I had a better chance of spreading the word at conventions than any other in my league. As far as funny stories….Lloyd Kaufman came onto set shooting his own behind the scenes short film for Troma about the level of our low budget set building. You can see this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAzCqAwCEg4

Genoveva –  What do you think makes Apocalypse Kiss unique in the world of indie film?

Christian: I like to believe that the story is unique, most people get distracted trying to judge the film against the likes of multi million dollar films like Blade Runner, Equilibrium, Star wars, and so on. I heard comparisons of all kinds. But the fact is, the world that we created in AK is the backdrop. The characters of Apocalypse Kiss and the story they tell are what I think are unique. Future killers with different agendas fighting for their own piece of a dying world and a broken cop caught in the middle. Tie in the fact that the entire budget of Apocalypse Kiss was $35,000 and that makes it the most unique movie on the planet. Show me a film made for that budget that’s as ambitious.

Genoveva – Where can film fans see Apocalypse Kiss?

Christian: Well with our New Distributor SGL Entertainment, Apocalypse Kiss is now available on AMAZON Prime. It will also be available for purchase on Blu-Ray and DVD this January.

Genoveva –  Tell us a bit about your creative collaborations with your wife Carmela Hayslett-Grillo and the future of Potent Media.

Christian: Carmela and I have always taken on many different roles on each others projects. Sometimes we co-write, sometimes we co-direct. She plays different roles in my films that I direct and I shoot her short films and web series.

As far as what is coming in the future, I am beginning production of my first TV Series, LAW OF PERDITION that will be going direct to Amazon Prime through our distributor SGL Entertainment. Carmela is beginning production simultaneously on ROXSY’s HOUSE OF HORRORS, her new web series that is a docu-comedy in the style of Modern family and the office with the Horror/Comedy antics of the Roxsy Tyler team.

A Life In Blood – Tales of A Horror Queen by Genoveva Rossi #5 – A Death House Special

genrossibanner

gendh5Shock and sadness ran threw the horror community in November 2015 when Gunnar Hansen died of pancreatic cancer. Horror fans all over the world mourned the passing of Leatherface, but Hansen was able to leave loyal fans with a parting gift: Death House.

What is Death House? It is an incredibly ambitious horror film written by Gunnar Hansen and director Harrison Smith. This film has been called “The Expendables of Horror” due to it’s spectacular casting choices: Adrienne Barbeau, Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder, Sid Haig, Michael Berryman, Tony Todd, Barbara Crampton, Dee Wallace, Tom Savini, Bill Oberst Jr and more. Directed by Harrison Smith.

gendh1I am truly honored to have a cameo among such a talented cast and crew. It was great to spend some time on set with horror icon Kane Hodder. We have both been guests at the same cons a few times, but Death House is our first film together. While on set, Hodder said, “It is truly an honor to be in Death House. This is an amazing film.”

Michael Berryman and I previously worked together on a Sci-Fi thriller called Apocalypse Kiss and it was great to be in a film with him again.

“I was very proud to be a part of this film. Gunner was a good friend and the story is solid with a cast that includes many friends and the best actors in our genre. Harrison is a keen director with an editor’s eye as the scenes are composed. I know that this film will be well received.” -Michael Berryman

gendh3“Harrison Smith is an actor’s director with affection for our genre’s past and a real vision for its future. Gunnar Hansen would be very, very proud of what Harrison has done with DEATH HOUSE, and speaking as a life-long fan of classic horror, so am I.”
-Bill Oberst Jr.

A big thank you to “Scary” Sheri Fairchild and her husband Frank Nicosia. I have worked with both actors on a few film projects in the Buffalo area and Sheri reached out to tell me Death House was looking for more actors.

gendh4I was going through my own spiritual upheaval at the time. I had found my poor mother passed away of a sudden heart attack on Easter Sunday. That huge loss had left me shaken, but not beaten. My mother always said, “My daughter is tough” and lately I have been challenged to continue to prove her words right no matter the obstacle; even losing her so tragically. But God only gives us what he knows we can bear.

So I got in touch with the casting director of Death House and ended up on set in Philadelphia at the beautifully grotesque and haunting Holmesburg Prison. I had the good fortune of being in a scene with screen legends Barbara Crampton and Dee Wallace.

gendh2While on the set of Death House I was able to sit down and talk with producer Rick Finkelstein. He explained, “This film was started by Gunnar Hansen. It has really come together better than we ever imagined. We have the best locations, best cast, horror icons, and an amazing script.”

Even the location was perfect, Holmesburg Prison, which is part of the Philadelphia prison system. It’s history already sounds like a horror movie. For thirty years chemical companies tested on inmates with sometimes horrific results. Also the prison warden and assistant were murdered mere steps from where we conducted our interview.

gendh6Watch for Death House for it’s amazing cast, horrific special effects, and to see Gunnar Hansen’s last blood splattering performance. This film was Leatherface’s baby, it was Gunnar’s dying wish that Death House be finished, and made into a huge success in the genre. Horror fans are sure to enjoy this truly epic film. Finkelstein promises, “When you leave this film you will be questioning your own thought processes and concepts of good and evil.”

gendh7This article is dedicated to the memory of Gunnar Hansen and my mother.

Felix Silla and I at Amazicon

Welcome ghouls and boys to another chilling chapter of A Life in Blood: Tales of a Horror Queen. Horror truly is more than a genre, it is a lifestyle. This month things went in a really amazing direction! I was invited to be a guest at Amazicon, a pop culture convention in Delaware and my directorial debut, Attack of the Killer Chickens is getting a lot of attention at film festivals!

At Amazicon I had the honor of being a featured guest along side so many legends of pop culture: Lee Meriwether, Felix Silla, Priscilla Barnes, Jim Krut, Sharon Ceccatti, Mike Christopher, Leonard Lies, Jeremy Ambler, etc.

It was amazing getting to chat with the great Felix Silla, who has appeared in classics such as Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Brood, Battlestar Galactica (1978-1979), Demon Seed, The Kentucky Fried Movie, The Addams Family, Star Wars, Planet of the Apes, and more! Silla has a great sense of humor and is a really great all around guy. This horror queen is a huge fan of his work.

I spent some time with the zombies from Dawn of the Dead: Jim Krut (helicopter zombie), Sharon Ceccatti (nurse zombie), Mike Christopher (Hari Krishna Zombie), and Leonard Lies (Machete Zombie). I have known Jim Krut for awhile since we’ve been guests at a bunch of fun horror conventions in the past and he is a always a great person to see. Speaking of zombies, Jeremy Ambler, a zombie from The Walking Dead was there too. I recently shot Running Away From the Unknown with him in Virginia, which is a film we are both actors in.

It was a great honor being a guest at Amazicon and meeting so many fans of my work. I an deeply grateful to everyone that came to see me and to Amazicon for having me there.

This horror queen decided to step outside of her comfort zone and direct her first short film! So I recently wrote, directed and starred in a crazy comedy/horror film lovingly titled Attack Of The Killer Chickens! My cast and crew included some of the most creative people I know: Edward X. Young, Rocco George, K.J. Hopkins, Nick Petito, and Pamela Martin! Each person brought a unique talent to the film and I am so thankful for their work.

With James Balsamo

Welcome ghouls and boys to another chilling chapter of A Life in Blood: Tales of a Horror Queen. Horror truly is more than a genre, it is a lifestyle.

I recently had a fun time shooting a cameo for Killer Waves with the great James Balsamo of Acid Bath Productions then it was off to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, voodoo, and to shoot I Was a Teenage Alien Mutant Cyborg.

I recently go to meet up with James Balsamo of Acid Bath Productions and work on his newest film Killer Waves. Balsamo and I first teamed up for I Spill Your Guts in 2012 and we have become great horror pals and frequent collaborators. Fans can look for me in I Spill Yours Guts, Cool As Hell, Catch of the Day, Bite School and now Killer Waves!

killerwavesKiller Waves is about: A slasher is killing surfers to make a surfboard out of human flesh. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5241508/) This is a super fun horror comedy that fans of director James Balsamo are sure to love. Starring James Balsamo, Phil Anselmo, Chris Mulkey, Robert Maillet, Frank Mullen, Jake Hunter, Bob Socci, Robert Youngren, Robert Arensen, James Cullen Bressack, Chloe Berman, Mary C.

With Cinnamon Black

Then it was off to New Orleans for some warm weather and b-rated adventures. When I arrived I realized I had come during Mardi Gras! There were literally a few parades everyday and parties in the streets. While in the big easy I spent some time checking out the local voodoo. My first stop was The Voodoo Museum, where Cinnamon Black told me, ” I had a lot of love” and remembered me from my last trip. The museum has some really great displays and sells some very helpful products. If you are in New Orleans you need to stop by the Voodoo Museum. I also visited Marie Laveau’s tomb at Saint Louis 1 Cemetery, and stopped by the Voodoo Temple. I guess I had magic on my mind.

I was lucky to meet an artist, writer, actor, and horror fan named David Storm from an art shop in the French Quarter. Through him I met Benjamin Wood, Omar Manuel Peinado, and our director Lancelot Jean Mallia. We shot a really fun scene for I Was a Teenage Alien Mutant Cyborg in the historic Lafayette Cemetery. This is the same cemetary they filmed Double Jeopardy and Interview with a Vampire. With Omar as my cameraman, we were ready to shoot some great moments for the film.
